Reply to "Learning to Run the Trains"

You'll generally find that backing stuff up is a lot more twitchy than running with the locomotive pulling it.  I'm still learning the paths through the Ross Double-Slip Switches, I occasionally set them wrong for the path intended and boom, another derailment!

Yes... to every word.  The backing up seems to be related to weight as does the 2.2% graded curve (O-54)... the string effect on the light rolling stock lifts the wheels off the outside rail once there are around nine or ten cars in the consist.  I stuck some steel bar in a few of them and it seems to have ended that issue.  The paths!  Oh Yes!  the paths.
